God, impart thy strength;
and in strength, power to suffer;
And to suffer for the truth;
And in truth, all light;
And in light, gwynvyd (heaven;
And in gwynvyd, love;
And in love, God;
And in God, all goodness.

The traditional ancient Welsh Prayer of the Gywddoniaid, “The Wise Men,” preserved in LLYer Mawr Margam, The Great Book of Margam.
